Cricket is not exactly a well-known sport in this part of the world. Thus, it was basically a totally foreign thing to me when I met Richard and learned about one of his obsessions. I’ve listened to him drone on about it over the years, but never really learned to understand the game itself until this summer. I have yet to watch a match, thanks to lack of TV coverage, but listening to live coverage via the ‘net has been enough to get me thoroughly hooked.
To all those who rolled their eyes and told me not to bother figuring out such a boring game … you lied! I’ve never known anything that kept me on the edge of my seat time after time like the different phases of the Ashes series have over the summer.
